Review David Sobotka
  • Divorce done quickly

    5.0 stars

    Posted by a client

    I hired attorney Sobotka for my divorce case. It was a complicated case involving a business and substantial assets. My wife and her attorney made things very difficult. Nonetheless I obtained a fair settlement relatively quickly. I attribute that fair settlement to attorney Sobotka's efforts. He was aggressive when he needed to be and knew how to get the case finished without spending years in court. He was prompt in returning phone calls and always prepared. Highly recommended.

  • custody case with results

    5.0 stars

    Posted by a client

    I hired attorney Sobotka to represent me in a custody case. My wife was refusing to allow me any reasonable custody time with my two children. Mr. Sobotka had the case scheduled for trial and eventually I obtained a shared custody order which was more than I was asking for. Mr. Sobotka handled the case professionally, was always prepared, and most importantly got results. I would recommend him to anyone in a custody dispute.

  • Horrible. Look elsewhere for legal counsel.

    Represented me in my divorce. I lost nearly everything. I actually followed up with the Master after the settlement and asked why I was not granted my only two requests. I further explained that I left a job in Wilmington, DE paying 25% more because my ex refused to relocate, yet her attorney made the case that she was a stay-at-home-mom that sacrificed everything. How could something so significant be overlooked? Because Sobotka ignored the facts and failed to represent me even though I was writing notes for him - compelling facts - in the final proceeding. Even the Master agreed that was an important point and while she did not comment further it certainly was incongruous with other claims that were made. I cannot emphasize enough that he was more interested in running his clock and doing as little as possible to represent me. Go elsewhere. Don't waste your money, time and risk your outcome. It's not worth it.

    I wish I had read these reviews before speaking with this lawyer. The 1 star reviews seem about accurate with what I experienced during my case. I wouldn't recommend him for a case of any importance, such as a custody case. Be prepared for him to say and do as he likes in court instead of touching on subjects you specifically request be discussed.

  • Worse attorney

    Posted by a client

    I hired David Sobotka about 6 years ago for my child custody case. He wouldn't let me in court room with him yet my ex and his attorney were in there together. He is one interested in taking it money. I lost full custody of my daughter because of him. I fired him and hired another attorney who did more for me and charged me much less.

  • Lost It All

    1.0 star

    Posted by Troy

    This attorney cause me to lose everything during my divorce. He was recommended by a lawyer who previously retired and it was the worst mistake I ever made. DO NOT USE! Go to the second floor of his occupancy or utilize his neighbor, but do not waste your time with this guy. YOU WILL LOSE IT ALL!

  • RUN away from this attorney!

    I used Mr. Sobotka briefly before finding out how he works. Horrible communication skills. He has this self image of himself that is more important to represent than what you ask him to do. He won't contact you about important information but when your bill is due expect a personal phone call. I definitely would not recommend this attorney to anyone unless they are sitting against me in the courtroom.

  • Discretion lacking

    1.0 star

    Posted by a Divorce client

    I’m a local, fairly well-know, and, hopefully, well-respected member of the business community. As you might imagine, given my standing in the community, it was desired that my divorce be handled with the utmost confidentiality and discretion. I conducted my research, spoke to several people whom I trusted and settled on Mr Sobotka. What a mistake. Soon after handing over a fairly substantial retainer, word got back to me that Mr. Sobotka was boasting to his fellow attorneys at a local watering hole of the “big client” he landed and the sizeable retainer he was able to wrangle from me. My personal situation was private no more.

    Dave handled my divorce case beautifully. His professionalism and timely manner concerning important information was excellent. It was truly a relief not having to worry about the legal matters so I could concentrate on my family and personal life. It was definitely a stress free experience with Dave handling my legal issues. Thank you Dave, your the best. I would recommend you to all my friends and family.
